Hailing from Grime’s homeland in East London, Jammz grew up surrounded by pirate radio and vinyl culture, inspiring him to begin writing bars from the tender age of 11. It was only around the end of the 00s that he started to take it seriously, releasing both his ‘What’s The Latest?’ and ‘I Am Grime’ EPs in 2010. Dedicated to perfecting his rhymes, but with no intention of hitting the bigtime, Jammz put in serious hours on highly influential radio stations including Flex, Mode, DejaVu, Radar, Rinse and NTS. Toting the catchphrase “I am radio”, he championed the airwaves as not only a source of inspiration, but as a place to learn how to host, perform and refine his craft – and to collaborate with some of Grime’s most sought-after producers, including Moleskin, Spyro and Spooky, in lengthy ‘Pirate Session’ sets available to stream via Jammz’sSoundcloud.
